Dark Art or Magic Bullet? A Beginner's Guide to Deep Sky Image Processing by Steve Richards

A new book by the author of ‘Making Every Photon Count’, due for publication in time for Christmas.

Whereas ‘Making Every Photon Count’ concentrates on the equipment and capture techniques required for successful deep sky astro-photography, ‘Dark Art or Magic Bullet?' covers image processing, mainly using PhotoShop. 

  • Aimed specifically at beginners, new concepts are explained in plain terms ensuring the reader develops a comfortable understanding of the software and procedures required to produce beautiful images. 
  • Advice is based on tried and tested methods aimed at producing stunning results from your hard-won data. 
  • The logical progression of an image processing session from calibrating and stacking the data through to producing images full of colour and detail, is explored in depth. 
  • Written in an easy to read understandable style with numerous illustrations and examples to lead the beginner through to more advanced topics. 
  • Lie-flat design makes it easy to follow written procedures while working on your own images

Having been very impressed with 'Making Every Photon Count' I was very quick to buy this when it became available. In the beginning there is so much mention of Maxim DL that I have found this a bit disconcerting. If you use Maxim DL then you may find this book invaluable. If you do not use Maxim DL and have no intention of doing so, then, in my opinion, some of this book will be wasted on you. Whilst there is much to be gained from the book in a general sense, the constant references to Maxim DL in the early stages, can leave you thinking it was primarily aimed at users of that application.
